Join the Paradox Sports community for an Ice Climbing Clinic in Lake City, CO!
Feb 3-5, 2023
Be a part of a community redefining what it means to be adaptive.
Many of you have joined, or at least have heard of our annual trip to the world famous Ouray Ice Park in Ouray, CO, but how many of you know there is another “farmed” ice park an hour closer to the Front Range, that boasts the same high quality ice climbing, and a friendly community that exudes warmth and inviting, mountain town vibes?
Lake City is a quaint and historic mining town, just 5 hours from Denver, in the stunning San Juan Mountains south of Gunnison CO. It is home to the under-the-radar-for-now Lake City Ice Park. The park is made up of two main climbing areas (Water Tower Wall & The Beer Garden), with a 3rd expansion zone currently being developed, with dozens of routes graded from easy / moderate, to VERY difficult. It is also EXTREMELY accessible and user-friendly!
The weekend will include intermediate skills, where we’ll practice efficient ice climbing movement and techniques, as well as protecting ourselves and partners via ice screw placement / ice anchor building, and rappelling using “ice threads”. We’ll also discuss identifying good and bad quality ice for climbing, as well as chat through some of the risks and rewards specific to ice. Sunday will be a half day of open top-rope climbing before we head home.
